Pepperoni Pizza Spread

Welcome to Red Couch Recipes where I found a yummy dip for you to munch away your post-election elation or disappointment.  Who needs the crust on the pizza?  You certainly will not miss it with this dip.  I am a huge fan of stuffed green olives, and adding them to this spread amplifies the flavor.  It is ooey, gooey and so delicious.
Recipe for Pepperoni Pizza Spread
Adapted from a recipe by Connie Millonovich, of Cudahy, Wisconsin as printed in a Taste of Home Recipe.
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup chopped pepperoni
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup copped green pepper
1 can (6 ounces) ripe olives, drained and chopped
1/2 cup stuffed olives (the green kind)
Crackers, bread sticks, French Bread, or vegetables for spreading
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, except the ingredients for spreading.  Transfer to a baking dish, 11-1/2  x 7-inch or similar baking dish,  Bake uncovered for 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until edges are bubbly and lightly browned.  Serve with crackers, bread sticks, French Bread, or vegetables for spreading.

Just a fun picture of my son and his Halloween mask.  He put it on for some friends the other night.  He would put it on and then do a dance that just cracked me up.

Our little friend December wearing the mask and doing his dance.

Thanks for dropping by Red Couch Recipes.  You will love this spread.

That looks just delicious. This is a great time to find new heavy dipping recipes, too, because I'm always in need of something new to bring to a winter party.
